Coming Soon! LCRA's San Saba River Nature Park

Construction at San Saba River Nature Park is under way!  LCRA is partnering with the City of San Saba on the new park.   LCRA will develop it and the city will operate and maintain it. The park is scheduled to be completed in fall of 2011.

When construction is completed, the park will have a variety of amenities, including hike and bike trails, fishing areas, an archaeological interpretive area, wildlife viewing sites, primitive camping, parking and restroom facilities. The new 40-acre park property includes a large pecan orchard with some centuries-old trees and frontage on Mill Creek and the San Saba River.

"We are not going to be like any other town; we are going to be unique," said San Saba Mayor Ken Jordan. "Very few communities can tie together three parks, with each being a little different, and come together as one." The San Saba River Nature Park also will link to existing Risien Park and Mill Pond Park.

For information on other fun things to see and do in San Saba, visit the San Saba Chamber of Commerce.
